The most overlooked, yet absolutely vital, figure in dance music is the resident. This is the DJ that sets the tone, delivers when the guests are off colour, and knows the music that defines what the club is about in any situation. Quite simply they are essential, and they don't come much better at their craft than Circus's Scott Lewis.In 2007 he became resident at both Circus and Chibuku's afterparties after winning the iDJ Raw Talent competition, with iDJ calling the mix, “...an hour of the type of mean and jacking techno, electro, acid and dirty house that strobes and sweaty cellars are made for”, with particular praise coming from judge, Nic Fanciulli.His ability to keep the groove bubbling for those who wanted to carry on the party made him a firm favourite with the club's more hedonistically inclined regulars, and it was only a matter of time that he was established as resident at Circus proper - quickly earning the respect and trust of the night's figurehead, Yousef.Over the years he's shared stages with the great and the good of the dance music industry as well playing back to back with some of the biggest names in dance music at the Circus afterparties. It's in that latter realm where he's arguably at his best, being able to adapt his sound in an instant to whichever DJ fancies playing, or holding court to a rapturous crowd by himself for the whole night.That versatility spans into his style, where he covers the full spectrum of house music. He's adept at gently increasing the tempo and creating the atmosphere through deeper shades earlier on, able to build and hold energy in the room ready for release, but he’s not just some warm up DJ; he’s frequently tasked with bringing the party at peak time, cavorting through tougher, acid-flecked grooves and heavier beats to full rooms, all the while maintaining a delirious command of the groove.
